This recipe consists in sautéed apples with butter and cinnamon. Although, it is also possible to make a light version of this recipe, replacing the sugar with sweetener without calories.

How to make your sauteed apples look better? I'll give you some simple tips:
Cinnamon: I’m a cinnamon lover, so I use it with no limits and use 1/4 teaspoon for each apple. You can use less, omit it altogether, or try something else.
Another thing you can do is rub the apple slices with lemon, to prevent them turning brown and look better when you make the final dish.
Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.
Trick: I added a large pinch of salt because it was too sweet and that was an excellent addition.
